Hierarchy

There is such a thing as Hierarchy.

Hierarchy is from the Greek  Hieros and Arkhein that respectively mean “Sacred” and “to Order”. Do you see?  

It is not that some souls are better. It is because some souls are bigger. There is always one bigger than you. The bigger they are the bigger their love. It still surprises me every time I feel blown away by Love. Have you ever felt that? When I am in the presence of the bigger ones, I don’t feel humiliated. I don’t feel small, I feel GREAT! I feel right at my place. Imagine the smallest of us occasionally shining as much as all the others combined.  

I am happy there are bigger ones than me. Without them I would have much more on my shoulders. I am happy just the way my life is. I do my part in every moment. I remain mostly silent and I do what God wants. That’s how I roll! And I love it! It’s exciting. God is really funny, you know.

There is such a thing as Hierarchy.

We are of the smallest ones, now. They say Heaven has not been the same since we left. There are many kinds of us. We are the rainbow. What is your kind? Do you know your kind well? Because we are indeed one of a kind.

And think of the faeries, the gnomes. Pixies and Elementals. Many tiny little souls flying around in apparently chaotic patterns. They are the smallest of us. They well know their place. They do not show themselves bigger than they are. And to illustrate that, I will leave you with this Fable from Jean de Lafontaine that our tiny tiny faery friends inspire me to share with you. Enjoy!

A frog met a bull

that seemed to him of a good size.

It, which was not as big as an egg,

envious, extend and enlarge and labour

at matching the animal in size.

Saying: “Look at me, sister;

Is it enough? Say: Am I there yet?

Not even-Now? – Not at all. Now?

No closer.” The puny creature

Bloated and popped.  

Jean de Lafontaine, Paris, 1668
